It's also why the Kobo Touch is a strong contender. Thanks to kepub, books magically appear on the device without ADE, etc.

Sony PRS-T1 / 6" E-ink / 2GB / micoSD support / dual touch / WiFi / one month battery life / multiple dictionaries / cover art in standby / Pearl eink / built-in Wikipedia, Google search support / stylus notetaking / 168 g / plastic body / 164.95


This is a very credible upgrade ... depending on what the price is locally. In the US, Amazon has been investing heavily in the $114 price point with TV ads.

Wow! That's an additional 19,200 books you can lose if the microSD card is capable of 32 GB. Upon reflection, this is the "killer app" e-reader enthusiasts have been lusting for.
